Processing coffee is the act of removing the layers of skin,
pulp, mucilage, and parchment that surround a coffee bean—the raw
ingredient that the farmer will sell. How a grower chooses to process the
coffee will have a profound impact on how that coffee tastes. There are four different ways to
process coffee which include natural process, washed process, wet hulled, and honey processed.
A natural processed coffee, also referred to as dry processed,
is a traditional yet common way to process coffee today.
Originating in Ethiopia, it involves drying out the entire
freshly picked coffee cherry with the seed still inside.
Unlike natural or dry processed coffees,
washed processed coffees are called the opposite—wet processed!
In this scenario, machines called depulpers remove the seeds
from the cherries before drying them. However, it is not just
any cherry that gets seed removal. These cherries must have the
perfect amount of ripeness to make sure they are sweet enough,
and go through a sorter for density.
Wet hulled coffee, not to be confused with washed/wet process, can also be called semi-washed coffee. During this processing method, depulping machines remove the seeds from the cherries. However, rather than move to drying beds, the cherries get stored in plastic tanks. The mucilage also remains on the seeds, and much moisture is retained. At this point, the mucilage has created a thick husk that encapsulates the seeds. They then go through a process called hulling to remove it, along with parchment (the dry flakes covering a bean) that surrounds the seeds, and laid out to dry afterwards.
Honey processed coffee is a method that involves a combination of both the natural and washed methods. It is a rare and demanding method, and not as commonly practiced as the previous two.
However, it produces a unique cup of coffee, with flavors similar to both of the previously described
processing methods. During honey processing, a depulper removes the seed from the cherry before it dries
out. However, it does not go into a washing tank to get rid of the mucilage. That mucilage, which is
what the honey refers to, stays on the seed as it dries in the sun afterwards. The amount of mucilage left behind determines the sweetness, and there are even machines to control the amount on the seed. The seed then finishes out drying on the bed, and also gets raked and rotated to avoid mold.
When buying your next bag of beans, pay attention to the processing method,
which you can usually find labeled on that bag. You may find yourself curious to
learn how each method will alter and improve your final brew!
